Employers frequently rank graduates of English programs as among their most versatile and adaptable employees. This is because graduates with a Bachelor of Arts in English acquire skills that are not confined to a single career path; their studies allow them to pursue a wide range of personal and professional goals. Thinking critically, analyzing deeply, and communicating clearly are skills demanded by 21st- century employers who value nimble, creative, thoughtful employees. The KPU English degree is a strong first step towards further credentials such as K-12 teacher certification, law degrees, and a range of Master's degrees.
